Back when my wife and I were dating, I had this bad habit.

For some reason, I never wanted to completely commit to anything. She would want to hang out one night, and I would agree. But then if something else came along that sounded fun, I would essentially ditch her and go do the fun thing.

Now, it wasn’t that she didn’t want me to do fun things. I just hated committing to anything. I was the king of giving “maybe” answers. I’d say maybe to everyone and then figure out which thing I wanted to do.

So lame, I know.

But you know what? Chances are you’re doing the exact same thing with your studio.

You have every intention of spending quality time with “her,” but any time something better comes along, she gets ditched.

You need to set some goals for your studio.

When I say “goal-setting,” you probably think “work” or “weight loss.” But do you set goals for your studio? For your music?

If you don’t, I think that’s a big ol’ problem.

Like my good buddy (kidding) Wayne Gretzky said, “You miss 100% of the shots you never take.”

If you don’t have any concrete goals that you want to accomplish in your studio, you’ll never accomplish much. She might even break up with you. (i.e. You end up selling all your gear because you never use it.)

Take some time to think about what you want out of your studio/music. Set a goal or two.

For more on how I set my big ol’ 50-song goal and how you can set and accomplish big goals like that, check out the latest video inside the VIP members area:

Some good stuff in there to help you make 2014 a friggin’ awesome year for music.
